Hello ,

I'm facing another issue to connect to SalesForce (Mkt Cloud).

Basically the process authenticate, returning a token. Then I use this token to load my data:

This configuration is working fine when I move to postman e execute. But I believe that I'm passing something wrong to the last stage to authenticate.

Obs: I'm not using authentication in the last stage... only the token....

Any idea of can be wrong?

Thank you

Replace your expression with ${str:concat('Bearer ',record:value('/result/access_token'))} and it should work.

Hello Dash, thank you for the answer.... It didn't work.... just to see if I understood it... the /result/access_token is my field retrieved from the flow to authenticate.... Should it really be in single quotes? I tried withtout but got an error of sintax, saying it can't identify the "/" ...

I also tried it str:concat('Bearer ',/result/access_token) Without success

BTW, what should the token look like... is it in format "BearerACTUALTOKENGOESHERE" as in the word "Bearer" followed by the token without any spaces or other chars in between?

The header should likes: Authorization: Bearer <my_generated_token> It contains a space after the "Bearer" which is a string indeed.

Hi :)

Just to return how I handled the situation.... as I couldn't use the HTTP Client Destination , I used the Process .

image description

So I've checked the option "Use OAuth 2" in the HTTP Client and set the authorization details there, and the JSON formated in the "Request Data"

image description

Then it worked fine, the only issue that I'm getting is that as it seems the HTTP client is authenticating only one type when my token expire, the remaining data fails. I'm looking an work around to this situation, accepting tips :)

Thank you Dash for the help, it helped in other things as well :)
